Here is a link that gives the beep codes for your laptop.

Eight beeps means a display failure.

Since the external monitor works sort of, you know it's not a total fault with the video card.

With the notebook off, hold down the "D" key and power the notebook on. If you get solid colors on the screen, then you know the LCD is good. I would look for a problem with the video cable. Just recently, someone found that the front bezel was creating a problem with the video cable.

There is some more info which may be of interest on this link
